Chicken Pinwheels W/Creamy Lemon Sauce Recipe @pinch

When you're looking to step up your appetizer game, try these chicken pinwheels. They're so good and easy to make. The moist and tangy chicken and creamy cheese mixture are rolled into a soft and buttery crescent dough. Drizzling a creamy lemon sauce over the pinwheels adds an extra punch of citrus flavor. Serve for fancier football fare, New Year's Eve appetizer, or when you want a lighter snack-like dinner. To quote my kids 'Oh my God mom these are heaven on a plate' and 'these are my new favorite meal' and 'what's that word for something that tastes hommie, oh yeah, homestyle.' Needless to say, these are a new favorite in our family. Hubby, my two sons, and daughter-in-law gave them their seal of approval and rave reviews on Sunday night. I came up with this recipe and just had to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. We all loved them. One son had them without the sauce and loved them as much as those of us who ate them with the sauce. They are wonderful either way.
